I bought a waffle maker last year, and up until recently, it was one of those kitchen appliances that sat under the cabinet unused. Now I'm realizing all the awesome things you can do with a waffle maker, and Im learning that waffles really don't have to be unhealthy at all! In fact, there's a recipe in my book that uses sweet potatoes to make waffles, and I recently made a recipe that used regular potatoes as well.
This waffle sandwich is made with a Paleo batter using coconut flour, but the texture is FLAWLESS! They taste like real waffles. Added bonus: NO REFINED SUGAR! Just one tablespoon of maple syrup is needed.
Ingredients (makes 1 sandwich)
- 1/2 avocado
- 1/2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 pasture-raised/cage-free egg
- Sriracha, to taste
Ingredients for Waffles:
- 2 pasture-raised/cage-free eggs
- 1 tablespoon 100% grade B maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon ghee butter, melted
- 4 tablespoons almond milk
- Dash of sea salt
- 1/4 cup coconut flour
- Pinch of baking soda
- 2 tablespoons filtered water
1. Preheat waffle iron to medium heat.
2. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, maple syrup, melted ghee butter, and almond milk.
3. Add in coconut flour and making soda, and mix until there are no lumps. Add water, and mix again.
4. Spoon into the waffle iron, and cook for about 3-4 minutes or until top of waffles become golden.
5. While waffles are going, add avocado into a small bowl and smash with a fork. Heat up olive oil in a small pan on medium-low heat. Add egg, and cook for about 2 minutes or until whites are cooked and yolk is still runny.
6. When waffles are ready, transfer to a plate using a fork. Spread avocado on one side, and then top with egg and Sriracha. Add the other waffle to close up the sandwich, and serve immediately.
